WIN!! with DermaStore!

|By Elana| Home

My daughter will forgive me for speaking about her bum today.  But, cutting molars is no joke! and a tender bum, needs a responsible parent.

I had the privilege of recently interviewing dermatologist  Dr Webster. I had questions around skin and especially baby skin.  He referred me to his online platform and I must say, I am impressed and hooked!  Dermastore™ is an online skincare boutique founded by Dr Ian Webster, a specialist dermatologist with over twenty-four years of experience. He is the first skin specialist and medical practitioner to develop an online cosmeceutical store in South Africa.

Mustela & Dermastore 2

When you land on the page, make sure to click on “skincare” and then ” baby”.  This is where you will find my latest discovery!  Mustela by Dermastore™.   We have our favourites already! The Vitamin Barrier Cream 1*2*3 (R150) is a life saver.  After a nappy change, pat bum dry with a tissue and apply.  This stuff works miracles!  The Hydra Bebe Facial Cream (R120) is just beautiful and the wipes, although pricier than ordinary baby wipes, Dermo Soothing Wipes (R100) is hubby ‘s favourite. I use it for the final wipe and for baby’s hands.

Caring for your baby’s very sensitive skin in the best possible way is key to overall health of your little one and it is for this reason that Dr Webster added Mustela to the Dermastore™ offering. Mustela has always chosen ingredients of safe, natural origin, sourcing most of the key active ingredients from plants.

I Quit!

|By Elana| Elana Style, Home

I quit!

Never give up. A Cliché right? But so true.

I had a resignation this week from one of my team members. It didn’t surprise me, because when you work with people, you know behaviour, you understand patterns, you notice poor performance, and then finally their urge to give up. To quit. I don’t mind it when people give up. I always just wonder why?

What about you? Do you want to give up or quit?

It made me think of the times in life that I wanted to just, Give up! Quit!

I remember when I just started out in entertainment; one of my team members on the channel that I presented on, gave me a tough time. O boy, gossip, stories and fiery words. She did a lot in her power to hurt my feelings. I phoned home to Cape Town, to tell Daddy, that I am going to give up. I should have saved the money of the phone call i made, cause dad encouraged me to stay in JHB. He said this;

Why give up? Why quit? It’s called show business, not show-friends.

Well, I stayed, and 20 years later, I am still in the business that produces results, change, satisfaction, and produces very little friends. Because I understood this; I have a purpose in life, and I am going to need to be vigilant if I want too achieve my goals. I don’t want to be famous, I want to make real change, I want to make people feel good, I want to make people feel valued, I want us to understand that we can do anything!

My mentor claims that there are 3 realities in life,

  1. Life is difficult
  2. Life is difficult for Everyone
  3. Life is more difficult for some than for others

Somehow we believe everything should be easy. A smooth easy way to success. A prize when you get something right! Right?

Well, here is the truth. Nobody escapes life’s problems, failures and losses.

Work hard, run your projects with dedication. Today, You better need a really blerrie good reason to quit, cause I’m on your case.

Go to work.
